Marta graduated from the choir conducting department of the Fryderyk Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw where she studied classical choir music. In 2010 she moved to Denmark to study rhythmic choir conducting at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus/Aalborg, with an emphasis on leading a cappella choirs and vocal groups.
Her main interest in working with choirs is energy, groove, communication, sound and blend, performance attitude, and creativity. She works a lot on the concept of “intelligent choir”, where all singers are responsible for the final performance utilising a lot of exercises for improving musical skill, not only for the whole group but also for particular singers: vocal technique, sense of rhythm, harmonic hearing and awareness of style.

Here are some recommendations from former choir members:
Niels & Ulla Siljat – singers from Vesjaellands Kammerkor:
We will never forget the months we worked with Marta. When she first came into the room where we were waiting in suspense, we immediately sensed she was a person of great musical authority and fantastic charisma! She worked with the choir on songs both technically and musically, got everyone to do their best (…). Everyone in the choir was motivated by Marta and worked seriously – she raised the choir to a level never seen previously(…). It was the greatest musical experience we had had in all the years of singing in our choirs – after Marta it was never the same.
H.C. Rordam – chairman of Badeklubbens Man’s Choir:
Marta is – besides being an absolutely lovely person – extremely musical and competent, innovative and, maybe most importantly, she manages to bring the potential of the Badeklubben Man’s Choir to the maximum level.
